There are many types of ‘waves’,

however, I am sticking with

my most photographed waves.

Some smallish waves near Gibson steps

which are near the Twelve Apostles. 

The rest of this week’s images were taken near…

…or at, Torquay beaches.


The waves were important in as much as…




…they gave my subjects…



…somewhere to play.







One of my favourite photos,

although I don’t think the surfer

would agree it was his best moment.


Ryan-Weekly-PC-69:   Waves





A few minutes of burning gas and

carefully directing the hot air

into our balloon…


…and it rose quietly into the

chilly Melbourne morning sky.


A rose by any other name…


Valentine’s Day roses.

Their botanical name is Helleborus.

Their common name is Winter Rose,

and they should be in flower soon.

Also known as Snow, Lenten,

or Christmas Roses,

North of the Equator.





Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne provides

the setting for my first images this week.

And why wouldn’t the bloke in the boat

have a huge smile on his face.

While there were plenty of people enjoying the Lake,

both on and off the water, generally speaking

most of us felt that it was

not quite swimming weather.

However, I daresay many would think I am mad

to drag myself out of the house

to watch the sun rise.


Then there are those who actually play…

…on the water.


These images taken with the camera club

to which I belong was out on Corio Bay

for a sunset cruise in February 2019.

My preference is for some sunrise shots

followed by a McDonalds coffee.
